    Buckwheat wax: - limits fat buildup in adipose tissue. - has a lipolytic activity: thus it helps to reduce the volume of adipocytes and thus the thickness of adipose tissue. Omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids: - restore the skin barrier - protect the fragile skin around the eyes. Buckwheat wax is used in eye creams for its anti-puffiness action (clinical test). It can also be used in body-contouring products.
